Anyone stayed here yet?

Made reservations for May trip as I wanted to try downtown. It was here or The D and with Mission's room cleanliness issues at The D, I opted to give DG a try. Definitlely not as cheap as other options downtown, but brand new remodel opened 12/13 and website makes it look pretty nice. A resort fee of $11per day seemed on the reasonable end of that spectrum. If I have enough time on the trip, I'll do a mini review if one has not been completed by another member by then.

In the meantime, anyone have any thoughts on Downtown Grand?

I'll be able to tell you at a later time, I'm actually Reviewing it in April.

Are you going to be there in April? If so, when in April?

I'm not certain of my exact dates at this time.

Also, for the record and in fairness, I noticed a good few things about the room at the D that other people may not have.

I appreciate that, and I would like to meet you as well, but those dates are impossible. To be honest, I know I am coming between 4/13-4/19, I just don't know if it is 4/13-4/18 or 4/14-4/19, it all really depends on what day I like the Departure time and price the best with respect to my flight.

May is completely out and I have a ton of pre-planned stuff for the week of Monday 4/21.

Hey, I asked first! ;)

Your dates are impossible. Are you aware, too, that April 18th is Good Friday? I expect flights from Mexico to be packed, and cost more, between the 16th and the 19th.

<sigh>

I guess it just won't happen. Too bad.

That saves me the effort and I know yours will be written "more better" than mine :-).

I did not stay there, but I visited the casino on the morning of 01/21 at about 10:00. I signed up for the slot club and won $3 of free play, could've won up to $1,000 according to the billboard. The best VP I played was 8/6 JoB ($0.25 level) using the free play plus another $20 of my own money. Walked away even from the VP. The Pai Gow Poker table was closed, even though a dealer was standing there. I went to the only craps table, was the only player, and lost my $60 buy-in after about 10 minutes. I had set about 3 points and played 2x odds, also placing the six and eight, but hit seven fairly quickly. I think I won one place bet on the six or eight. Although the place looked nice, it was incredibly small. I didn't get a good impression from that short visit, and don't really have a desire to visit again.

Thank you for the compliment! I've had others tell me I write real good.
